SALB celebrates World Book and Copyright Day

As a build up of World Book and Copyright Day celebrations a creative writer's workshop in Northern Cape is taking place today, a collaboration between Northern Cape Department of Sport Arts and Culture, National Library of South Africa and SALB. This will be a two day workshop. It is well attended with 24 blind and visually impaired members from across the province.The attendees will be taught how to write short stories and poems. With the end goal being to produce at least one book even if its a compilation of short stories or poems from the group. NLSA will assist with production and publishing of the book/s. SALB will convert these into accessible reading formats for our members. The final product is earmarked for November 2022.
